The Wall Street Journal has revealed that one-time Ruthless Records and Death Row Records songstress Michel’le Toussaint has filed child support charges against ex-husband Suge Knight.
The singer, and late ’90s interim head of Death Row is seeking over $40,000 in court-ordered spousal charges, as well as assistance in ensuring that Knight pays the $13,000 plus thousand required monthly by court order.
Michel’le‘s suit claims that the two “agreed to marry” after Knight‘s 1997 incarceration. The singer, who in addition to having a child, Bailei, with Suge, is also mother to at least one child with late ’80s and early ’90s boyfriend Dr. Dre.
While on Death Row, the singer released the 1998 album, Hung Jury, which failed to crack the Top 50 of the Hip Hop/R&B charts. In 1989, the singer went platinum for her self-titled debut, produced by Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and Eazy E.
She last appeared publicly on 2003’s Dysfunktional Soundtrack, released on Death Row.
Toussaint is reportedly taking her spousal charge to bankruptcy court, as Suge Knight is not believed to be earning any income.
